This is my effort for January for the Virtual Paintout. The venue this time is Corsica, and what a beautiful place it is. I had a hard time deciding and took the little yellow man for a long walk around Google Maps. The great thing about Virtual Paintout, is that if I ever go to some of these places I’ll have an idea of what is there. I haven’t been to Corsica – the nearest I came is when I flew from Rome to Palma de Majorca.
This drawing is in watercolour pencils on Fabriano Cold Press paper. It was only when the drawing was pretty much complete that I realised how the diagonals lead the eye through this drawing. Here’s what I am working from.
There are many many entries in this month’s challenge – some wonderful ones that I have to take the time to follow to their blogs and see more of the artist’ work.
